1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Just thought I'd share this video :)

    its rack of rack and load youtube fame talking about a hw100 thats been bottle swapped!

    BUT this isn't a DIY home brew or a limited run this is available from a certain gunshop.......





    I dare say they will struggle to keep up with demand once this is common knowledge, as this turns a very good rifle into a extremely good rifle and looks absolutely stunning!

    I know this isn't new as such but the fact its now available direct from a reputable gunshop is and thought it was something that definitely needed sharing :thumb:

    Enjoy atb guys

    Its exactly that mate :thumb: well more more than less.

    But tbh instead of buying a gun and then sourcing all the parts separately this is already put together and available direct from livens gunshop.

    This means no left over parts and built by a qualified gun smith and it would obviously have a warranty etc.

    So although not new as such for people that don't have a hw100 or what one to eventually bottle swap this is absolutely fantastic news!

    Now we can get what was a custom rifle direct built ready to go no messing about and with warranty.

    Like I said thought this was worth sharing :D

    For the conversion I had done you really don’t need a qualified gun smith - you could put back to standard in 15mins (less actually)

    I think there was an initial run of 100, however form stocks will make them if asked - so if someone provides the rest job done

    I do agree it takes it onto another level - a RAW beater in fact (IMO)

    Justin (Aussie Thunder) on here made these kits, I have 2 of my HW100s converted . Like Tim_B says, it takes a few mins to convert!

    I dont know why but i love the look and would love the shot count. But i dont know if i could use it as a pest control gun. Perhaps the fx impact is in my future after all by the time you bought all the bits it must come in around that sort of money :(.

    Dr Bob makes the bottle adaptor with an offset elbow. You'll also need a stock or cut your original.

    I think the coloured laminate stock is what sets it apart as well, which is a huge part of the cost at around £600 if i am in the right ball park. Almost doesnt look like a Hw100 at all , but i have a kt action which is a keeper as the shot strings are fairly consistent after a de gunk and polish of a few bits thanks to other peoples knowledge on here and the hw forum. I would love to do it or buy one second hand thats already been done as its a little bit unique and maybe a little bit less money.

    I have no doubt it does and would be happy to do such a job myself I've looked into the kits and they look like simple bolt on kit.

    However that's not really what this post is about this is more to draw attention to the fact that livens gunshop is doing basically what you guys have directly to the masses.

    And If like me and you don't own a standard hw100 and the only reason you'd buy one is to convert to a bottle setup like the one in the green lam stock then this is absolutely brilliant!

    No left over parts comes complete and ready to roll and has warranty. I'm sure its no more than what you guys have BUT it's being built and sold directly from a gunshop and that was the thing I found most interesting about the video and is why I thought it was well worth sharing :thumb:

    Thats true, I'm just not sure the massses are ready to pay 1500 notes for a HW100 (as they would see it). In future this may be the only way to get the conversion as well as Justin stopped doing his after he ran out of the adapters (he stopped making them). Do you know whether they re using Dr Bob or Justins adapters?

    If it were me, right now, I would go and get a secondhand HW100 - approx £500 - and then a dr bobs adapter and then ask one of the stock guru's to either adapt the stock I had (nicely) or go get a form laminate stock made. I think it would be around £400 cheaper this way....but not as easy of course.

    Also do it your self and cover some of the cost by selling the old cylinder stock etc making the prebuilt option much more expensive!
